Frequently Asked Questions FAQs

Is it possible to view the weight measured by a load cell system on two different instruments?

Yes, with the W-series weight indicators you can view the weight on two different instruments and manage the weighing system from two separate locations using the weight reading mode via serial port.

Simply connect one of the two weight indicators to the load cells and transfer the measured weight to the other weight indicator, via port RS232 or port RS485.
In this way, the second weight indicator becomes independent, as if it were also connected directly to the load cell system.

The procedure to enable this function is described in the “Reading the weight via the serial port” section in each instrument’s manual.
